Check Your Course Links

404 Page Not Found errorIf you use links to other web sites as a part of your course content, it’s a good idea to ensure they are still active and accurate, particularly before a new semester.

Fortunately, you don’t need to go through an entire course and click every link to make sure the site is still there.

Use the Validate Links In Content tool to automatically check web links throughout the course, and review a report of any unresponsive sites.

(NOTE: This tool will check links on Pages, and Modules.  It cannot check links within files, such as PDFs, etc.)

See the Canvas Guide:

How do I validate links in a course?
